Our filter is independently tested to NSF 42 Standard for the reduction of Chlorine and particulate which includes:
Removal of Chlorine (Taste & Odor) - A Chlorine reduction claim means the system reduces the concentration of Chlorine in the water. The current NSF 42 Standard is 50% or greater reduction. The Hydros Multi FilterTM reduces Chlorine on average by over 90% for a volume of 40 Gallons*.
*For best results do not filter more than 5 gallons a day.
Removal of Sediment - A performance claim for particulate removal means the system removes sediment of a certain size based on the following classes:
Class I - Reduces 85% of particles 0.5 to < 1 microns in size
Class II - Reduces 85% of particles 1 to < 5 microns in size
Class III - Reduces 85% of particles 5 to < 15 microns in size
Class IV - Reduces 85% of particles 15 to < 30 microns in size
Class V - Reduces 85% of particles 30 to < 50 microns in size
Class VI - Reduces 85% of particles equal to or greater than 50 microns in size
Unlike other filtering bottles – The Hydros Multi FilterTM removes particulate at Class 1 - NSF 42 Levels. Which means it removes particulate up to 100x smaller than the leading filtering bottle rated at Class VI.
The Hydros Multi FilterTM is not intended to purify water. Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality with adequate disinfection before or after the system. Individuals requiring water of special microbiological purity should follow the advice of their doctor. The contaminants or other substances reduced or removed by this water treatment device may not necessarily be in all users' water.
The system has been tested according to NSF/ANSI 42 for reduction of substances listed. The concentration of each substance listed when entering the filtering system was reduced to a concentration of less than the permissible limit for water leaving the system, as specified in NSF/ANSI 42.
Testing was performed under standard laboratory conditions at a flow rate of 0.5 gallons/minute. The substances removed or reduced by this water treatment device are not necessarily in all users' water. Filter performance may vary based on local water conditions.
The Hydros Bottle Water Filtration system has been independently tested by Torrent Labs (accredited by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board) against NSF/ANSI Standard 42 for the reduction of Chlorine (taste and odor) and particulate reduction (Class 1).
